I knew I would click instantly with Chad and Morgaine! They have great taste in music and even chose songs from the Kingdom Hearts (I was addicted to that game for months!) for their ceremony at Merrimon Wynne in Raleigh NC!
As the 100 guests arrived to the ceremony on the side lawn I had a mix of soft rock ballads playing. Chad and his groomsmen entered to “Pictures At An Exhibition” by Piano Guys. The Bridesmaids and Morgaine entered to “Passion/My Sanctuary”. After a short service that included very touching vows (especially by Chad), they recessed to “Passion (After The Battle)”. The guests made their way into the house for cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres by Rocky Top Catering. During the cocktail hour I had a mix of classic soul, soft rock and indie rock playing.
After pics & video were taken by Hooman from Vesic Photography and Marty from Blu Couture Wedding Films the guests were invited into the carriage house for the reception by planner Sally Oakley. The room looked beautiful with floral arrangements by Daniels. I introduced the wedding party to an instrumental of “Viva La Vida”. Chad and Morgaine came in to loud applause and had their first dance to Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” performed by Boyce Avenue. They took their seats after and Morgaine’s Father welcomed everyone. During dinner I had the same music mix playing as cocktails.
After dinner we had the toasts and Cinda’s Cake cutting to “How Sweet It Is”. Morgaine joined her Father on the floor for their dance to “For My Wedding” by Don Henley. It was so sweet to see her Father singing it to her!! Chad escorted his Mother to the floor for their dance to “You’re The Inspiration” by Chicago. Before opening the floor to everyone we had an anniversary dance with the winners married 38 years. I opened the floor to everyone with “Build Me Up Buttercup” that instantly filled it! Wow.. I saw some people running to the floor (not kidding!). We paused for the bouquet toss to “Single Ladies” and garter toss to “Sexyback”.
I ended the night with “All Of Me” by John Legend before their exit. What a fun night of dancing! Thank you Morgaine, Chad and Sally!!
